  • Water wetter and rain x

    This product called water wetter looks like it would be a good product to use in our model a's

    How many use rain-x how does it work in conjunction with your wipers also does it help wiper blades keep from squeaking?

    I used water wetter and distilled water on my rebuild engine while breaking it in :-) Now antifreeze.
    Rain-x is get stuff, above 45mph I don't need my wipers, in my modern cars, haven't used it on the "A"

      i really like the rain-ex on the vintage cars since their wipers are more a decoration anyway

        My wiper works just wondering if rain-x improves it.


        • #6
          the rainex will keep the entire glass clear, not so much the wiper. we love rainex here!

          My buddy swears by Water Wetter vs. antifreeze. I seem to have read that the boiling point of antifreeze is lower than either water or water with water wetter. I did remove my AF and put in a Water Wetter solution. It didn't seem to affect the car temp significantly.

          Rain X is great for all cars, especially old ones, for all the reasons listed above. Great for modern cars, as you don't need to turn on the wipers right away. It seems logical that they might not squeak as much with Rain X, but I have not conducted any experiments.

            Rain X works great. I apply it to my Tudor's windshield in the spring and fall. I'm not out in the rain very much, but when I am I don't even need to worry about trying to use the wipers.

            For the moderns, I use their windshield washer solvent in the reservoirs and it is very effective.

              I use Water Wetter with distilled water in the summer as my 31 Slant Town Sedan seems to run a bit cooler. I change over to a 50/50 mix of Sierra antifreeze and distilled water for the winter since I drive my car year-round. Rain-X also works very well on my windshield and helps my little wiper work better but if driving at speed, I do not need the wiper. I also use Rain-X on my wind wings for better side visibility.

                Good points have never tried either yet but am planning too.

                  If you "THINK" it runs cooler with WATER-WETTER, it "DOES"---It's like taking a SUGAR pill!---BUT, a SUGAR pill WON'T substitute for an ANTI-PAIN-PILL, trust me. I'm waitin' for my VICODIN to "kick" in, it takes 27 LONG MINUTES!!

                    I'm still waiting for the pharmacy to refill my Viox prescription. The crap they replaced it with doesn't work worth *@#%&*

                  Friend, Rick, has to get a "P" test, EVERY time, to get a refill!
                  I've been on VICODIN, for 22 years, to keep MOBILE. For me, they work well, like they were originally formulated to work. They've become like a part of my Body Chemistry.

                    Mitch I looked at your link for thermocare my engine had been rebuilt and tanked but i am sue it is not like new if one uses the thermocare i assume you drain the anti-freeze add this product and distilled water and drive the car .
                    How long and then you drain and flush it out and put back in the 50/50 antifreeze mix.

                    I thought someone was wanting one of these water bags recently.
                    Is Colorado a foreign country?
                    The bag says "Imported" and "Made in Colorado".

                    Touring with the model A in the rain and waterproofing.
                    by BNCHIEF
                    On a recent tour I was on it rained and sometimes very hard, knew about model t fords and issues in the rain but this A was my first. Some fellows experienced water in their distributors and I assume it got in there from driving down the road and water entering the distributor thru the cap locator pin I cannot imagine it coming in on the backside where the advance lever is. The front area would...

                    Wipers or Rain-X
                    by Tom Wesenberg
                    When I first learned about Rain-X years ago, I applied some to just one half of my Omni windshield. A few hours later I was on my way home from a National Model A meet and ran into rain. It really is amazing how well that stuff works. No wipers were needed on the left side of the windshield. I don't know what the shelf life is for Rain-X, but when applied it's good for a month or so from what I've...

                    One method to clean a water jacket
                    by tbirdtbird
                    The pix are self explanatory. Be very careful working with lye, keep it off your skin and eyes. I bolt the adapter I made to the inlet with a copper gasket. I carefully fill the water jacket to about an inch from the top with a strong lye solution. The lye gives off lots of heat when mixed, use cold water and mix it up little by little. Let it sit in the block for a week. The head is off, obviously....

                    I put my rear seat in after picking it up at the upholster and it has a large water stain or water ring. How can I remove that water mark?

                    What Maintenance on Leakless Water Pumps?
                    by 29er
                    Since I've got to install a new head gasket and will have the water pump off anyway, is there any maintenance to be done on leakless water pumps? This water pump has about 5,000 miles on it and has functioned without problems. As far as I know, all the bearings are sealed, and other than cleaning it and adding a new gasket there's not much to do, right? How many miles have you guys gotten out of leakless...

                    My annual anti-freeze conundrum
                    by Ray Horton
                    I have always used denatured alcohol mixed with water for anti-freeze, per the FSB. Why? Because if anti-freeze leaks into the crankcase, it will destroy babbit. At least that is what I was told early on by people who would know. But times and things change. My question, as always during this time of year, is there a modern anti-freeze that will not damage babbit if it gets into the oil, maybe some...
